On May 27, 2017, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that the 2018 G7 Summit will be held at the Fairmont Manoir Richelieu in Malbaie, Quebec. The iconic hotel, originally built in 1899, overlooks the majestic St. Lawrence River, in the heart of the Charlevoix region.
Charlevoix is a world-class destination that welcomes thousands tourists every year from the world over. From its stunning natural beauty, to its energetic business environment, to the generous hospitality of its people, it is a region that symbolizes Canada.
Canada has an abundance of natural beauty, from coast to coast to coast. Previous Canadian Summit locations include Muskoka, Ontario (2010), Kananaskis, Alberta (2002), Halifax, Nova-Scotia (2005), Toronto, Ontario (1988) and Ottawa-Montebello, Ontario-Quebec (1981). Each location has been as unique as the last, and Charlevoix is no exception. Its diversity of landscape and culture has inspired and attracted generations of artists, poets and sportsmen from all over the continent since long before Confederation.
In addition to its natural beauty, Charlevoix evokes the unique historical significance of the St. Lawrence River. It encapsulates the best of Canada, showcasing this country's innovative spirit, its cultural and linguistic diversity, its artistic and cultural prowess, culinary expertise, and agricultural innovation.
